The Magic Number Company

21e8 is a research lab and venture studio pioneering computational data markets - competitive ecosystems that combine real-time content creation with distributed data exchange. We designed the first universal price system for digital information - a design pattern that encodes context and value into canonical identifiers of data - to displace ad-based ranking and recommender systems like those run by Google and Facebook. By combining information content and attention with bandwidth and computing power, we're opening the potential for true information supply chains for software, media and more.
